WellStar has announced restructuring within the nonprofit health care system, and almost 30 corporate jobs are being affected. Officials say the changes are being made to plan for the future, as the federal government reduces the amount of money it pays to hospitals.

“These changes help us respond to external challenges in the marketplace and across the nation, and make way for new roles needed to take care of our patients and our community,” Reynold Jennings, WellStar chief executive officer, said in a June 4 letter obtained by the Marietta Daily Journal.

Jennings wrote all positions affected are corporate, non-clinical roles and severance benefits have been offered.

A hospital spokesperson said 11 officer positions were eliminated and 18 team members were displaced, which means the nonprofit will attempt to find other jobs for the employees at WellStar. If they cannot, Jennings said they would also be offered severance.

The above explanation is highly doubtful. Rather these people were not liked.
